Exactly! The people running surplus food and buying on the market not only bake that bread for them and to cover the sellers deficit, but also for the market itself, by paying the market fee. I always wondered why the market works at all and it obviously works because some players don't understand ...

Tya - that will work for a while, but eventually, the market catches up and raw mats are selling at 3-4 and lux at 9-12, and the profit margins aren't quite as high as you are used to. Enjoy it while you can though.

So for sellers - market range isn't very important, other than to see buy orders from further away.

Don't be too quick to assume trading & buying scarabs will kill the game. They are inexpensive enough to buy that I bet the trading ratio for them plummets pretty quickly. I've already seen it go from 5k lux goods to 1k lux goods on the trading wall.

Oh, right. I'd forgotten about the travel & production bonuses. That's reason enough to spend the scarabs on the monuments.

Thanks!

Thanks, Speyspider for your input. I'm hoping someone who has already built a pyramid might chime in, too, to let us know if their rank seemed to improve with the pyramid or not.

Rankings/Pyramids

So, do pyramids count in rankings? I know monument plots do, that was obvious when I got them, but I wonder if there is a further boost from building a pyramid on it. I'm out of scarabs, and all my next palace upgrades take a scarab so I'm going to have to pony up some dough to buy some to continue....

SUG: Mobile interface for iPod Touch/Blackberry

The title says it all. Not sure if its been suggested or not, but the regular version is not mobile friendly (not any worse than any other website, but since there is so much clicking in the game, it's not easy).

I wish I'd read this before I spent two of my free scarabs on monkeys! Oh, well, worth it, the monkeys are cool! I'll have to save the rest of my scarabs to spend on palace upgrades. I'm just unlucky that my next palace upgrade in all of my cities needs a scarab.

Leather is my capital city. It's also 24hrs from my other cities (I moved closer to friends). I destroyed my sandal shop in my capital and built a second brickworks. There are never a loss of people willing to trade sandals for other lux goods and I'd rather be shuttling lux goods than raw mats for ...

EDIT: OK, how about this solution? It looks like some players like the sent message that we used to get on our city screen. How about bring that back & just not adding it to the Transports Game Log at the same time? You still get the message for verification & your receipt that way & you don't need...

But if they are worried about it, they can definitively see whether your ships are incoming or not through the transports UI... But then you are clicking all over hell's half acre.

I do miss the "en route" message, too. I didn't care that it popped up in my transport log, but I liked that it popped up on screen as soon as I sent the goods. I often used that to confirm to myself that I sent the goods and then cut & paste into a scroll or onto the trading wall to confirm goods s...

Tempting the fates once again to report one stele still standing since Jan 8th. I didn't copy time from the log, but have referenced this before in this thread.

Okay, in the spirit of beta testing and feedback, let me just suggest that this same thing could have been accomplished by just implementing a palace upgrade requirement of the warehouse being whatever level (someone said -4?) necessary to house all palace upgrade requirements instead of leveling th...
